Tilda's Grillin' While Chillin'

Hello Sweet Readers,

Nothing much has been happening since I last wrote. Life is just moving along at a nice pace with no problems! Life is good!

I have a cute little card to share with you today. I was thinking about how we gather with friends over the BBQ during the summer months and thought it might be nice to create a grill themed thank you card featuring our sweet Burger Tilda. I know that one of my friends would love a hostess thank you! I got my stamp at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS. I know that Diana would be more than happy to order one for you as I think she is out of Burger Tilda at the present. She may have already reordered them, so check with her. It is such an adorable stamp and would make a great addition to your collection! I just think it is one of the best themes for summer cards. Check it out!

My flowers are from Hooked on Craft. This Australian flower source ships worldwide, so take a look at Karen's lovely flowers! I just love them and am so addicted!

Now for the card! Here is a photo of the front:



Isn't she just the cutest stamp? I don't know why the bun looks red. It is definitely a shade of brown, LOL. I had this BBQ stamp and thought it was a good pairing in size with the Tilda image. Gosh, I just noticed that the hot dog looks red and the burger looks charred! LOL No, they aren't those colors IRL! The paper I used is from my scrapbooking days and is filled with BBQ related words. Too bad I had to cover them all up, LOL! That's one less thing in my paper stash!

Here is the inside:



I was going through a container looking at my charms and came across this plastic slide holder. It was in a baggie filled with slide cases in several different colors. So, I chose the yellow one and used it to "frame" the metal spatula charm. One less thing in my stash! Using it made no dent! LOL. On the right side of the card, I chose to use the Magnolia BBQ which you can find at MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS HERE. I thought the size better suited the interior as an accent.

I hope you liked my latest card. Thank you so much for stopping by. I love your comments and hope that you will leave one for me. Next Wednesday, I will draw a name from those who left comments. The person whose name is drawn will receive a somthin' somethin' from me! Woo Hoo! Please come back soon!

XO,
Chris
